Joe Brooks Bio

Meet a refreshing change to pop music: Joe Brooks. Sure… he could melt the hearts of girls around the world, but this serious musician’s been working away at perfecting his talent for the past six years…


Typical Teen

Joe Brooks first found his love of music at the age of 16. He was a typical teen living in England who enjoyed playing soccer and tennis. After his mom took him to a blues concert, Joe was inspired to learn guitar and create his own music. Joe wrote songs and posted them on MySpace. Before he knew it, he was the UK's highest ranked unsigned artist, receiving over 30,000 plays a day of songs he recorded in his bedroom!!! After getting offers from different labels, Joe landed a management deal and signed to Lava/Republic in 2009.


Gimmick-Free

Lots of artists are hyped and buzzed about online… but not Joe. The secret to HIS success has been his dedication to his music. The proof: his first single, Superman, has almost 10 million MySpace plays to date, and his first two UK tours totally sold out, without the help of a label or publisher!


The Music

Joe’s sound covers elements of rock, pop and blues and reflects his own personal tastes, from John Mayer to Ray Charles.

“Instruction in world history in the so-called high schools is even today in a very sorry condition. Few teachers understand that the study of history can never be to learn historical dates and events by heart and recite them by rote; that what matters is not whether the child knows exactly when this battle or that was fought, when a general was born, or even when a monarch (usually a very insignificant one) came into the crown of his forefathers. No, by the living God, this is very unimportant. To 'learn' history means to seek and find the forces which are the causes leading to those effects which we subsequently perceive as historical events.”

'Men and women must have their adrenals stimulated from time to time.'What?' questioned the Savage, uncomprehending.It's one of the conditions of perfect health. That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.'V.P.S.?'Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.'But I like the inconveniences.'We don't,' said the Controller. 'We prefer to do things comfortably.'But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.'In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence.I claim them all,' said the Savage at last.Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”  I freaking LOVE Brave New World! It's one of the best books I've ever read, and that conversation between the Controller and John is my favorite part  [s:sm3/1jw1]
